What is an EICR and legal requirements for businesses near Belgravia (SW1)
Electrical installations in buildings deteriorate over time and occupiers carry out modifications to the electrical systems, such as adding sockets or lights, for example. We may take it for granted but most of the electrical installation is hidden and faults can develop and lead to serious, or even fatal, injuries.
An Electrical Installation Condition Report is a full inspection and test of a building’s fixed electrical wiring. This will include all fixed electrical mains cabling, electrical distribution boards and accessories, including electrical sockets, light fittings and switches.
If you are a landlord, director, property manager or owner of a commercial property, it is your responsibility under the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 to ensure that the electrical installation within your property is safe. This legislation, along with others, places a duty of care on employers and employees for the safety of themselves and others, meaning that EICRs must be completed regularly to ensure compliance. An EICR provides physical evidence that these important safety checks have been carried out and shows a plan for any remedial work that needs to be completed.
Ask yourself a few important questions:
- Is your property changing ownership?
- Are you know and understand your legal obligations regarding your property?
- Do you have an EICR that is due to expire?
- Are you concerned about your electrical system for any reason?
- Are you about to put a property on the market?
- Are you reviewing your electrical maintenance plans?
- Are you about the rent your property out or get new tenants?
Our expert team is on hand to help, and to offer advice and cost-effective solutions. We also complete a wide range of other building and renovation work; see an example of a recent apartment refurbishment in Westminster.
Do I need an EICR?
If you have ever wondered if you need an EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report), the answer is yes. Whether you own your own home or a property, which you rent out, or you are responsible for a non-domestic property, an EICR is always necessary.
Home-owners: Whilst it may not be a legal requirement within owner-occupied homes to have an EICR, home owners should have their electrics tested regularly, to ensure they are safe to use and are functioning correctly. This will minimise the chance of electrical faults, which could lead to electric shocks or fire and even be a risk to life. EICRs are often recommended during the house buying and selling process.
Businesses: Employers are legally responsible for the health and safety of their employees under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. They are also required to safeguard staff against the risk of injury sustained from electricity used during work conditions under the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989.
Landlords: Landlords have a duty of care towards their tenants under The Landlords and Tenants Act 1985, and this ensures checking the electrics within their rental properties are safe at the start of a tenancy and maintained throughout. EICRs for both landlords and businesses provide proof that they have met their legal obligations and are often required for insurance purposes.
